Recently I renewed my CDC (CDC Renewal Sticker). One friend sent a mail from his company detailing CDC renewal procedure with covering letter and other formalities. I did not follow their procedure and stuck with CDC renewal procedure laid down in the DG Shipping Circular. You can download my CDC Renewal form filled for reference.
CDC Renewal Procedure broken down into parts which seemed most confusing to me :
Register & complete your e-Samudra seafarer profile. Completing your DG Shipping Seafarer profile, is mandatory as per DG Guidelines. Same is also required for Dangerous Cargo endorsement.
I made my DG Shipping profile during Master exams @ e-Samudra dg shipping seafarer registration. While updating, I was confused about Passport number as my Passport was renewed. E-Samudra has many problems on of which is that it does not allow you to delete any previous records so I simply added my new Passport details. Rest I updated few old data and my seafarer profile was complete. You will be asked to recheck again prior taking final printout. You need to submit your profile printout too with the documents required for CDC renewal.
Friend I just wrote common eSamudra problems and their possible solution. I hope those solutions help you too.
While you cannot do much for 500 error as its their server issue but for other problems I think you check the printout page as same happened with me during my DG shipping online seafarer registration too, but the printouts were OK. Best of Luck.
Hi Sir, my CDC expired on 06/8/2012,can I renew CDC or do i need to apply for a new one ?
You cannot apply for "new" CDC as new CDC is only issued by DG Shipping to someone who never had any prior CDC (Please check Declaration of CDC Renewal Form).
You need to apply for CDC Renewal and if you have enough pages then apply for CDC renewal sticker. Best of luck.
Hello sirji, while updating my gtf to the profile i see familiriasation in LNG tanker operations. There is nothing called as gtfc in modular courses drop down.. Are both the same? Thank you
If our paages are finished then we should be applying for replacement CDC....
Download the CDC Renewal form @ M.S. Notice 24 of 2012 Dated 04.12.2012 . To me CDC renewal form is self explanatory. It covers not only CDC Renewal but also duplicate CDC and lost CDC replacement procedure. Listing down important points
No harm in self attesting, that is what I did ! Trust post card stamp details given in form, though it does not matter because anyways if it is of lesser value, you only will be paying for it (it is returned back to you) !
Please advice if the self attested xerox copies of CDC to be enclosed is only the first two pages or the copies of all pages of sea-time record????
It has to be all pages of the CDC.
Thanks for all the information.
DG website and guidelines doesnt mention about STCW course xerox copies and it had mentioned about CDC copy with gazetted officer attestation and DG profile. so is it a trend that shipping master rejects application without copy of modular certificates?
Hi Friend, most of the things I mentioned are already in the CDC Renewal Form. I am not sure what you are talking about or can you please leave the link of the concerned Guidelines which you are mentioning ! Shipping masters do not reject anything without a cause, and when they do, they do send cause of rejection letter which I have mentioned in CDC Renewal Status.
One of my friend got his CDC renewal form rejected as he got his documents notary attested (YOU NEED TO SELF ATTEST, SIGN AND DATE AS DETAILED BEFORE ).
He got his postcard returned blank and also received a rejection letter from DG Shipping detailing the reason of rejection within 1 month of applying for CDC renewal. Attaching his rejection letter for reference
Did u get the entire packet of urs which u sent or only postcard ?
My friend got rejection letter and blank postcard. Packet was never returned. Best of luck friend.
I am UK Master COC holder and sent my CDC for renewal to Shipping Master Mumbai on 19th December, Yesterday i rcvd rejection of form from them stating that the DG Mumbai approved Modular course certificates are not submitted.
I sent PSSR and Medicare certificates from UK college whereas AFF Course and PSCRB Course was from LBS CAMSAR and TS Rahman respectively. Can you advise the possible reason of rejection.
I have PSSR and PST certificates from singapore and have done my cdc renewal in 2012 eithout any issues.
All other certificates are from India.I am applying for replacement CDC now.Will there be any idsues please
I received my CDC Renewal sticker on 03 Jul 2013 almost 1.5 months after I applied for CDC renewal.
Indian CDC contain pages marked "SPACE FOR PASTE OF RENEWAL STICKER" almost at the end of CDC (Page number 29 onwards),please stick your CDC renewal sticker on this page.
If I had missed something, please do share your experience/updates about CDC renewal sticker.
Guys if any of you have renewed the cdc from mumbai recently, kindly tell me the address on which documents need to be sent.
Is it wht given in circular or the new dgshipping adress which is at kanjurmarg mumbai.
This is a repeated question ! I fail to understand the confusion between the address as you need to send your CDC Renewal form to any Shipping Master given in the form and NOT to DG Shipping.
Would recommend you to also check For CDC Renewal apply to any Shipping Master now. Best of luck friend.
On DG shipping website in the option C.D.C checker /INDOS checker when i enter the details the C.D.C validity is not correct ,self has renewed the C.D.C one year back,seems that the validity extension has not been updated,any body faced similar problem what has been done or any inputs.
Dear friend, even after an year of CDC renewal sticker, my CDC Checker is not updated and I am least bothered, as it is not my mistake !
All I am concerned is Esamudra DG Shipping Profile, simply because it is mariner's duty to fill it. CDC Checker is DG Shipping headache not mine, anyways you can check out
INDOS number not shown in CDC Checker OR
CDC Checker shows old data OR
contact DG Shipping and see if they can correct it !
